Polar Vortex Officially Over On Ambergris Caye, Belize

Picture this…you go out late at night to walk the dog.  The winds are whistling from the north…sand swirling about you.  You turn your collar up and hunker down…knowing this will be a very short walk for Elsie.  The temperature has dropped to 72 degrees fahrenheit.

An official cold front in San Pedro.


Sunday night, the front blew in and by yesterday morning?  The sun was already hot in the sky.  Socks back in the drawer.  Easy come…easy go.

I took a walk to town yesterday to take some photos of the gorgeous HOT weather.

The tide was low…the  wind blowing from the west and the beach at Royal Palms looks perfect.


At Banana Beach Resort.


Passing Banyan Bay…looking gorgeous.


This super cute sailboat “For Sail”.


I love seeing these signs that someone has put up south of town…here are PEACE and BROTHERHOOD.

And looking up.


And then up by the Island Academy.  Sigh…

But I was moving slow and mopping my brow.  HOT!  Really REALLY the cold front is over.


So nice to see this.  NO SARGASSO!

And the beach at Ramon’s Village.  Even a model posing for me.


And Hurricane’s Ceviche Bar out over the water.


From beginning to end, a gorgeous GORGEOUS day on Ambergris Caye.  And certainly no need for socks…my feet feel so strange in them anyway.

    Oh thank you, thank you, thank you for these photos! I’m having SERIOUS Ambergris Caye withdrawal and these photos really help! I’m hoping to be able to get down there in late February some time…but Oh…if I could just hop a plane now!!

    • It’s particularly pretty right now…still and warm…but for those who are sitting in the snow right now…or trying to start a car, a little sweat probably seems like a nice thing.

    Me too, Susan. Gorgeous photos!
